Martin Danchev is a Macedonian music composer/producer born in 1994 in Skopje, North Macedonia. He started his musical journey as a 7 years old kid, learning the piano instrument. In parallel, he kept his interest in exploring fields such as Musical Forms, Composition and Music Harmony, while he was learning about the basics of being an opera singer during his high school years (he finished in “DMBUC Ilija Nikolovski Luj” – Skopje, 2009- 2013).
Then he decided to study at the Faculty of Music in Skopje where he claimed his title Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance – Popular Genres(2013-2017). During his studies, he gained knowledge for Music Production. Combining all the skills he started collaborating with colleagues, directors and marketing agencies working as a composer, sound designer and music producer for National TV Adverts, Short Films, Ambient and Lo Fi tracks which were engaged in both National and International Campaigns.
Attending and participating in many masterclasses, workshops, conferences and online courses inside and outside of his country play a big role in his career development. The most important are:
